A: Either the window has fallen off its track ...

Either the window has fallen off its track and/or the regulator has failed. When the window switch is pressed, power is sent to a DC motor. The motor is attached to a scissor-type device called the regulator, which lifts the window up and down. A professional will be able to remove the door panel to inspect your window and perform the repairs needed to resolve the issue.
